PPP 2002 Costumes and Attendees

Wednesday, September 25, 2002 1:19 PM

Allright, I know Trouble Boy is going. I know Peabody is on the hook. I know my "Coaster" bud, Chris, is attending. I am sure that Kara is going.... That said, I am interested to find out who might be attending PPP this year, and what possible costumes they might be wearing, especially since there are so many of you weirdos out there. 'Moosh, don't beg....it hurts me;)

I am sending my "goon" in my stead....Anyone remember the costume that created such a stir last year....that's right, the LC groundskeeper....and 'moosh thought my goons were weak! Only in the mind, 'moosh!

Seriously, everyone, have a great time at PPP....it's one of two real "family reunions" during the coasting *season* and you will be in my thoughts. Travel safe, choose good costumes, GET PICS, and have FUN! If you haven't PPP'd yet, get a lesson in snapping flyers (many instructors there), and do NOT miss the Skooters (best bumper cars I've EVER been on).....bill, wiping tears....

I've been to PPP twice and have done group costumes both years.

At PPP2000 we were the injured Gerstlauer Test Dummy Crew and were quite popular. PTC's Tom Rebbie was especially tickled to see his competiton portrayed that way.

At PPP2001 we had a good idea but it went terribly wrong. We wanted to be the ghosts of famous coaster designers from the Golden Age [Miller, Baker, Allan, Schmeck, etc]. We bought ghost costumes online and no had tried them on until we put them on right before PPP. Imagine our horror when we saw ourselves for the first time:

Needless to say we did NOT wear our hoods that night. In additon to looking like KKK Choir Boys our costumes kept getting stuck in the rides, including one hysterical moment when my friend Jim couldn't get out of his Dodgem car. And worse, our name tags identifying which ghost we were kept falling off.

So...what to do about PPP2002? Easy - take a year off. No group costume and as far as I know no individual costumes in our group either. However with the birth of Trouble Boy I might just have to wear something. A lot of people have been sending me emails telling me I *must* wear a Trouble Boy costume. We'll see...I'm not committing to anything as of yet.

I do have a *great* coaster-related group costume for PPP2003, but that will remain top secret for now.

'Moosh, we stayed at Camp RRC last year...(we were hosted, not ghosted, for our first Knoebel's trip)....which ghost were YOU? I saw the *hooded* ghosts....good choice taking them off. Thought I'd fallen into the WRONG crowd...does RRC stand for Rightwing Redneck Crusaders....wasn't sure for a minute there...

edit: Is this thing on? Which GHOST....what designer....argh! Maybe "Trouble Boy" DOES suit you....;)

MagForce - Believe me that look was not intentional. The pic of the cortumes online didn't look like that. We took the hoods off immediately and didn't wear them at the event. In fact most ended up taking the rest of the costume off half-way thru the night.

Gator - I'm the one on the left. I was portraying Frederick Church.

I'm the rather husky ghost in the middle (who knew there were fat ghosts??) with the black glove(s) on. I really liked the hoods and wanted to wear them, but the other ghosts voted me down. So I converted my hood into a doo-rag and wore it most of the night, just so I could pull it down and put it on whenever I wanted to show someone just how WRONG our costumes were. I portrayed legendary coaster designer John Miller, kind of an easy pick given my last name. Was he fat too?

Oh, and Moosh, I was the one that got caught in the Skooter, not Jimvid. I can understand your confusion however, most of us were confused that night!

I will be attending with a few folks, but I am not revealing my costume just yet. I want to be original. :)

I'm in the same boat as John...(and the same car, too, actually)!

It's 106 miles to Indiana Beach. We've got a full tank of gas and a half-full cooler of cokes. It's light, and we're wearing Disaster Transport 3-D glasses....hit it!

Well, the meeting calendar shows who'll be there, but costumes are another story.

I have a possible group costume going, but I'm not positive yet. I've been to 2 PPP's. The first time, I didn't bother with a costume at all. Last year, I attempted to color my hair red and black, but the colored hairspray didn't work too well.

Bass, I have seen the other pic of you guys on RRC. This pic here is much more disturbing, though. Yeah, Moosh, it would be hard to spot you amongst the other ghostly tubbies, but you wear that hood so well.....;) Greg, you and quite a few in your family will be going correct? You could do something....:)

Now that IS trouble, boy....lol. And the "ghoaster designers" HAD to be rather portly, due to the awesome food in the afterlife.....;)

Bass - thanks for the correction. It was Jim who got his costume stuck on a Flyer tub.
